Cattleya labiata grows in Venezuela and Brazil. It is warm to hot growing, blooms in the fall and needs bright light. The genus Cattleya (C) contains quite a few species from tropical South America. They do best in a medium that has good drainage and dry between watering. Give them a short dryer rest after blooming.
